Rajnath Singh discusses ‘important issues’ with Governor Malik.

Union home minister Rajnath Singh met Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik here on Tuesday and discussed “various important issues” with him.

A Raj Bhavan spokesman said in a statement that Singh, who arrived here on a day-long visit to Kashmir, held discussions with Malik on “various important issues related to security management, implementation of development programmes and positive engagement of youth in the state.”

“Governor assured the home minister that the state administration is taking every step required to ensure against any delay in implementation of development schemes and welfare programmes; eradication of corruption; and redressal of public grievances,” the spokesman said, adding that Singh congratulated the Governor on “peaceful and incident-free conduct of polling during the recently-held urban local body elections, and assured his full support for the ensuing panchayat elections.”

The nine-phased panchayat polls are beginning in Jammu and Kashmir from November 17.
